MUA Amaretto Crush. Koala Bear, Pistachio Ice Cream Swatch and Review

MUA Ameretto Crush. Koala Bear, Pistachio Ice Cream Swatch and Review


I shopped around a month back for the first time from MUA UK. You can check the other things here. I wanted just one brush and a palette I wanted to shop RT brushes, then I thought of trying brush from MUA and then .......I saw that there is a nail polish named Koala Bear, I could not stop myself. I always have adored Koala Bears. They are second in my if-I-could-keep-a-cute-wild-animal-with-me list. First, with no doubt is a panda! 

But, who buys just one nail polish? Right? So, I got 4! The bottle of one of them (Frozen Yogurt, which was a close dupe of Bourjois  Lavande Esquisse) broke in 1 week. RIP. There was something wrong with the order - first, one of the brush came broken and then this!


So, here are the Amaretto Crush, Koala Bear, and Pistachio Ice Cream

LOL. I am sure the Koala Bear melt your heart! At times, I do feel I should put it on top of my list.




Now, here are the MUA ones...




MUA Amaretto Crush

(The second photo is more close to the real color)

 It is a muted rosy pink. I would have loved Amaretto Crush if it was a bit more vibrant.

MUA Koala Bear

The name did the whole magic for me. Its a dull grey. NYX Cloudy comes very near to this color. This is the sheerest of all. I am wearing four coats here. And even after four coats, you can see that the tip of my index finger nail is not covered. There is also a kinda bald spot in the top corner of ring finger nail.

MUA Pistachio Ice Cream

This is a bright mint. I am wearing two coats of the color, and you can see its thick. But, this one takes longer to dry.

Price - £1.00

Overall - I wore them a lot the last month - specially Pistachio Ice Cream. I will still continue to wear them a lot this summer. But, I have to say that I am not much impressed. 

Yes, they are a bargain for £1.00, but when you are shipping them from the UK, they are not a bargain any more. Unless, you are buying loads of things from MUA UK, buying these for anyone in India is not a good idea. 

They start to fade around the edges from the very next day. Pistachio Ice Cream is unique, but it takes a long time to dry. 

My recommendation is to skip these nail polishes. They are not great in quality.
